The secret of the harvest is to love the work you do...
to give thanks for the labor that becomes a part of you.
A gentle heart makes certain that each crop is picked with care
and takes a tender moment to enjoy the goodness there.
The richness of the harvest does not come without a cost.
Sometimes you walk with confidence,
and sometimes you get lost.
But if you reach for gratitude...
and give reverence its due,
you'll find abundance all around...
and friendship, too.
You'll find a love for every creature
underneath the sun,
and peace will fill your heart
before the harvest day is done.
(Then––if you've worked real hard––
a candy apple might be fun!)
